  • Fines and fees of a student requested by a parent without the student's permission
  • The name of a person who has checked out a particular item
  • Review of past users of an item or book
  • The nature of a patron's reference request or database search
  • The names of persons who have used DVD or Reserve materials
  • Circulation records for any person other than the requestor
  • Identification of students who borrowed reserved items
  • Circulation records of students suspected of plagiarism

Also never check out materials for a person to another person's account!
